A Bloody Good Time At The Grove

The TV Guide

David and I made the brave decision to make our way to The Grove last night so that we could walk around the outdoor shopping center to take in the Xmas decorations, pick up a few last minute things and pretty much just hang out. Fortunately for us, the massive crowds weren’t an issue nor was the, thankfully, dry weather. No, when I was bleeding all over the floor at World Market not 10 minutes into our arrival, I knew it was going to be a special night. More »

Hugh Jackman Drops In On ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’

... and he almost loses an eye!

Last week we got to see some of the first photos of Oprah Winfrey‘s first visit to Australia ahead of a series of special episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show which are being taped there this week. Today’s show, which was taped yesterday in Oz, featured a guest appearance by famous Aussie Hugh Jackman. He thought it would be neat to drop in on Oprah by way of zip line … and he almost lost an eye in the process. Here are a few photos and the gory deets of his ill-fated stunt:

As far as entrances go, it was certainly a painful one. Action man Hugh Jackman was left with a bad cut under his eye after sliding down a cable from the top of the Sydney Opera House towards a giant outdoor stage where Oprah Winfrey was recording the second of her Australian shows. But the 42-year-old actor failed to stop, crashing into the stage’s light rigging and hurting his face. After being lowered from the 100-yard zip wire, paramedics rushed onto the stage to tend to him, with all the drama being captured live on television. One of the medics even gave him a hug as host Oprah rushed over, suspending her show while the X-Men star was treated. ‘I’m not 100 per cent, actually,’ he said as he struggled to free himself from the harness while dangling 30ft in the air. ‘I’ve hurt my eye – it’s not bad. I’m really sorry about this.’ As blood began to run down his cheek from a bad cut below his right eye, Oprah hurried across to him and called for aid. ‘Let’s take a break and get some ice,’ she said. No less than six paramedics took Jackman off the stage as he held a towel to his face.

D’oh! I mean … talk about embarrassing stunts. Poor Hugh. It’s bad enough that he had to injure himself on camera but to do so on one of the planet’s most popular talk shows which is getting even more attention due to the special nature of being taped in Australia … poor Hugh. Well, the embarrassment doesn’t end with mere photos. After the jump, check out video of Hugh‘s exciting yet painful stunt … More »
